CSV bug in export or error in documentation

FileMaker Pro Advanced 16.0.3

Mac OS 10.11.6

Locale: Norwegian

 

According to the documentation here:

FileMaker Pro 16 Help

number fields are not supposed to be enclosed in quotation marks when exported as CSV.

"Quotation marks enclose all field values, except unformatted numbers."

 

In all my tests all values are enclosed in quotation marks regardless of field type.

 

Is this a bug or is the documentation wrong?

 

Could it be because the Norwegian locale has comma as a decimal separator?
